Zelda: Breath of the Wild's NPCs are so lovable

Zelda: Breath of the Wild feels alive in no small part thanks to its array of humorous, lovable, and extremely cute NPCs.

Breath of the Wild isn't just a beautiful game filled with enchanting majesty and fantasy: it's also filled with whimsy, charm, and heart-warming characters. As the first true open-world game in the series, I thought perhaps the whimsical elements would be put on the back burner. Boy was I wrong: the NPCs are absolutely amazing and go massive lengths to make the world of Hyrule feel alive. Everyone you meet in the game leaves an impression and adds a very real sense of agency to the world itself.

 

I'll be the first to admit I've barely scratched the surface of the game, but I wanted to share some of the quirky NPCs and how they've made me smile throughout my journeys.

 

P.S. Hestu is the best so far, but Purha is a very close second.

 

I also absolutely love Aster from Hateno Town...the Shakeeen! thing cracks me up every time. Magda was hilarious too...although she really gave me quite a thrashing for stepping on those shrine flowers. Sadly I haven't meant any of the fabled warriors or the Gerudo ladies with the ripped abs, so I'll update this post when I do!
